Hostage crisis in Iraqi shopping centre

Culture & Society

Gunmen and suicide bombers in Iraq have taken civilian hostages during an attack inside a shopping centre, and an attack on the intelligence building in Kirkuk. It is unclear how many hostages were taken, but the attack was been described as ‘very big’. Iraqi forces freed the hostages, and have captured at least one gunman alive.
